THE SAD MOMENT WHEN YOU GROW UP AND CATCH UP WITH THE AGE OF FICTIONAL CHARACTERS BECAUSE THEY DON’T AGE
THAT SADDEST MOMENT WHEN YOU PASS THEM.
At least I’ll never catch up to the Doctor
There has never been a more inspirational message than this post
hello 911 my sock is falling down inside my shoe
(12.9.2013: Someone told me they wanted to see my scars because they thought it’d be pretty.)
Ethiopian girl guarded from gang rape & assault by three lions.
“The girl had been taken by seven men who wanted to force her to marry one of them. She was beaten repeatedly. Then the lions chased off her captors. The three lions guarded her for about half a day. They stood guard until we found her and then they just left her like a gift and went back into the forest.”
Then, Stuart Williams (the local wildlife ‘expert’) suggests that perhaps the lions mistook the 12 year old girl’s cries for a lion cub. Which seems awfully silly, considering that lions are perfectly capable of telling apart the gazelles they eat from their own cubs, aren’t they?
if fuckin lions know that rape is bad then so should you
The character who stands out the most — aside from Veronica, of course — is Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring). Like Kristen Bell, Dohring is endlessly engaging. He’s introduced as an “obligatory psychotic jackass”, but as the season progresses, Logan’s humanized without being watered-down; even when he’s doing something as thoroughly loathesome as bribing a homeless vet to join in on his homebrew Bumfights video, there’s an undercurrent of understanding why Logan is the way he is. The character changes throughout the season, but the shift feels deserved and natural, not just because that’s what’s scrawled on the whiteboard in the writing room. - (X)
Obviously not just a sexy bad boy (although I do like that he is that too).
Warning: meta ahead!
The Logan character arc felt super organic to me, and I think that’s why so many people respond to Logan. It’s funny that he wasn’t the initial love interest, because looking at it now (even on paper), the whole thing makes so much more sense - plotwise - than if she had ended up with Duncan or Weevil.
The parallels are there - two people (both ‘outsiders’ to the Kane family) affected by the death of the one person who connected them, blaming each other rather than dealing with who Lilly really was. Both were also equally affected by Duncan’s emotional vanishing act. It makes sense that they’d find comfort together, since they were both equally shafted by the Kanes.
And that Logan would change through his love for Veronica also seems right, since his character had been depicted as somebody who was capable of great love but always invested it in the wrong person - which affected his self-esteem.
Having finally invested his love in the right person - and by finally having his love returned for once - it would make sense that he would blossom as a human being. He never had anybody who cared enough to demand something from him, nobody to be ‘good’ for, so he instead acted out in bad ways to get their attention.
He was like a plant that was kept indoors with no sunlight until he hooked up with V —-and yeah…I’m totally going to use that metaphor in Red Herrings!
Conversely, Veronica choosing Logan meant acknowledging that her old self was long gone, and that her new self had a complicated dangerous side and seeked the same in a partner. She tried to go backward with Duncan in S2 with disastrous results, because by denying her love for Logan, she was essentially denying the dark parts of herself that she was afraid to deal with. Accepting her feelings for Logan was a way of finally accepting who she really was. She wasn’t perfect anymore, (and maybe the perfect Veronica was only a mirage in retrospect), but she liked it better that way.
And this, right here, is why you write Logan so well.
Aww (blushes). He just needs somebody to care that he’s alive! I’m convinced he could become downright heroic and selfless (all the things V mistakenly thought Duncan was) if he knew it was for a good reason.
His enemy is apathy and aimlessness. He needs a purpose or he gets self-destructive, because he has nothing to lose.
Remember how amazing he was with Heather as soon as he realized she actually needed him? There’s literally nothing he wouldn’t do for somebody who loved him.
In my head canon, between Veronica and Logan - he is the better parent. He has no idea what he’s doing because he had no example to follow, but his instincts are good, even if he screws up sometimes by forgetting to pack the kid a lunch for school (though he always runs right over to drop it off). It’s all organic and fancy of course, maybe even a Japanese bento box, which Veronica lovingly rolls her eyes at before calling him her bad boy rebel (when she makes their kid lunch it’s PB&J and an apple).
He reads every book there is on parenting and shows up for every play and soccer game, eventually turning into the annoying dad who gets pissed off at bad calls by the referee. When the kid is sick, he’s the one who sits at their bedside and rubs their back, because he doesn’t want Veronica going to work tired and getting injured because of it.
I honestly think he’s one of those guys that has a wild youth and then ends up being ridiculously conventional (white picket fence life), because that’s all he’s ever really wanted.
Stop! I don’t want to bawl my eyes out.
there are several wardrobe choices in vm i will never forget tbh
~~~~~~~in which i criticize logan echolls’ wardrobe
I maintain that the white tux was sexy as hell.
Me too. Logie as Bogie.
That white tux is AMAZING, dear god. It’s pure matinee idol.
I like the Orange!
Isaac and Zac singing Baby It’s Cold Outside to each other is awkward as fuck.
